It depends on the dogs, sometimes dogs just don't like each other, depending on the dog sometimes they just don't bother the one they don't like or they fight you just have to get them together & observe them, there is no way to tell in advance unless you have a dog that you know doesn't like other dogs, I have 3 females and they are fine together, but one greyhound is the queen and she does get the first kiss, treat etc. and all is fine.

If they haven't met before I'd introduce on neutral territory. I wouldn't leave them unsupervised for a while but depending on how they react will tell you everything you need to know, pay careful attention to body movements and posture. I introduced a baby american staff to my 2 7yr old sister american staffs and they didn't like it at first. There were no aggression towards her just confusion. They are the best of friends now. All my 3 are spayed. It also helps if the dogs are socialized alot with other dogs. Good luck!

It depends on the dogs and their individual temperament. I have a female Pei and a female Boxer living together with no problems. Neither breed is known for females getting along but both girls are well-socialized and have established their pack order. The Pei is queen bee (and the brains) of the house and the Boxer is the obedient follower.
